Coding alternative for medical records

Eurofield Information Solutions (EIS) has developed a new solution called TurboGrouper for coding and grouping tasks which are fundamental for processing medical records and funding for all Australian hospitals.

"Convincing Australian hospitals that there is a choice is the next hurdle for EIS." said Alfred Papallo, CEO of EIS, "Because there was no real choice in the past, many hospitals have a 'rusted on' approach to their US-based multi-national coding and grouping software provider.

“EIS is taking this challenge directly to Australian hospitals and health authorities to show that there is a serious alternative to the current ubiquitous supplier. TurboGrouper is that choice."

TurboGrouper requires no additional or specialised hardware or support and the solution interfaces to DXC Technology's i.PM and WebPAS Patient Administration Systems.

Grouping of coded medical records into Australian Refined Diagnosis Related Groups (AR-DRGs) is essential for Activity Based Funding (ABF). AR-DRGs allow health authorities to provide better management, measurement and payment for high quality and efficient health care services. TurboGrouper was built, in conjunction with clinical codes and Health Information Managers (HIMs), to provide an easy-to-use, end-to-end medical coding and grouping solution that delivers fast, accurate and consistent results.

TurboGrouper has been reviewed by the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) and the Australian Consortium for Classification Development (ACCD) and received a Certificate of Acceptance.
